Octa core phablet from InFocus comes to challenge Xiaomi and Yu

InFocus which is an American OEM arrived in the Indian market just a month back and it’s now launching a second device, the M330 smartphone. The latest release is a phablet that’s quite similar to the Redmi Note and Yu Yureka where hardware is concerned and it’s attractively priced as well, at Rs 9999

The InFocus M330 isn’t as affordable as the M2 handset which is smaller, but a very attractive mid-range release at Rs 4999. The phone offers a large 5.5-inch 720p HD IPS touchscreen for visuals and there’s Corning Gorilla Glass 2 overlaid for extra protection against scratches. The exterior also plays host to an 8MP selfie camera which also has auto-focus, something that’s rarely seen on a smartphone.

Additionally, InFocus has also thrown in a 13MP Exmor R Sony sensor on the rear accompanied by an LED flash. The handset is ordinary in design and has no standout features, but there’s a beefy processor delivering the steam from the inside. The company has employed a 1.7GHz octa core chipset to do the heavy lifting.
